    Dumb child is dumb.
    Irresponsible parents are dumb.

    That is all.

    WTF. It's not like you play Wii pointing the controller at yourself. And the kid probably knew that.

    No charges get filed and everyone will believe it was an "accident".
    Sounds like a good excuse for an accidental killing by one of the parents.

    You can hack a real gun to work as a Wiimote. [​IMG] If you don't mind a couple holes in your TV

    This thread is now about how a 'prowler' sounds like.

    Wait a minute.... How could she shoot herself?
    I mean, if she was thinking it was a Wii remote, wouldn't it be facing the other way?

    Homocide... WHO?

    The girl shot HERSELF.

    Are they going to sue the dead daughter for shooting herself?

    Why are you so quick to assume that the girl actually took the gun and did it herself? People will say anything to get out of trouble

    Secondly the gun should have never been on the table or in reach of the child. That alone is a crime.

    My post was saying that the girl didn't shoot herself. It's stupid and highly unlikely. Now, if it wasn't the little girl who shot herself, it must have been someone else. The parents sound highly suspicious.

    I doubt she mistook it for anything, not that it would make a difference. Most kids pick up anything that looks interesting. Careless or busy parents I guess. [​IMG]

    or what raulpica and wiiman suggested.... You never know.

    that's a poor excuse and very unlikely that's what really happened. the guy should be charged for manslaughter at the very least.

    Obvious cover up is obvious.
    It's sick and wrong that they're pinning this as an accidental suicide.

    this shit was happening long b4 the wii came out... how can any1 speculate what the child mistook the gun as? Shit, u could make the argument she mistook it for a magic wand, or a toaster for fuck's sakes. Point being... now its the wii's fault, 10 years from now we'll have something else to blame... but in either case, its all speculation... unless some1 saw the kid pick up the gun and heard her say "i'm gonna play some wii", there is no way to even partially blame the wii for this incident

    this has been happening in the States for decades, because of their right to bear firearms... people exercise that right... and inevitably morons also get firearms and shit like this happens (seriously, people should need to ace an IQ test to have a gun). In Canada, I'm sure we have just as many morons (on a percentage basis) as the States, but our gun laws are more strict... so u don't hear about as many gun "accidents" in Canada as u do in the States. Not anyone's fault directly... but its the price u pay for your right to bear firearms. If you don't like hearing about shit like this... move on up north where it's "safe" (or at least safer)

    so why all of a sudden do we need to justify the childs actions by saying she mistook the gun for a wiimote? it's simple math

    dumb parents + dumb child + 1 gun = 1 accident waiting to happen... I don't see any room for the wii in that equation... do u?

    Criminal negligence. A three year old isn't responsible for anything that happens to them, the parents are. You can't leave a gun out around a kid of any age, have the kid die as a result, and then expect to not go to jail/prison.
